    This small town in Missouri really feels like a place I could live and raise my own family some day. Everybody is friends with their neighbors and we all do things together. Main street is improving, we just got a new police station and a new Italian restaurant just opened up and it's delicious. I've lived her since I was little and I'll definitely miss it when I leave for college.

    When you drive through Buckner, you always see police cars going around. In fact, at least two police officers live in my neighborhood. I think it's very reassuring to see police cars constantly and they're doing well with the new station on main street.
